Compis was a Swedish computer system designed and sold to schools in the 1980s, intended for educational use. The name was a combination of computer and kompis, which means pal or buddy in Swedish. The development was started by Svenska Datorer AB and was overtaken by TeleNova when the former went bankrupt.

The finished computer was distributed by Esselte. The computer was based on the Intel 80186 CPU and with CP/M-86 as the operating system in ROM (although it could also run MS-DOS from disk). The computer had a wide selection of ports, including one for a light pen. The computer was criticized from the start, and as the move to IBM PC compability came it was left behind and the project was cancelled in 1988 although it was in use well into the 1990s.

In Norway it was sold under the name Scandis.
